We believe in sharing our success. We work on a range of projects with some of the most marginalised communities of the world, committing a proportion of our profits every year to charitable initiatives. But we believe giving should be more than just financial. We dedicate time to supporting life-changing activities.
PARTNERS FOR A FAIRER FUTURE
We are longstanding partners with CAFOD (Catholic Agency for Overseas Development). We work with CAFOD’s inspiring teams on a variety of projects every year, funding charitable initiatives that help the poorest and most vulnerable communities in the world – regardless of religion or culture.
“YOU CAN SEE THE SENSE OF RESPONSIBILITY TO SOCIETY RUNNING THROUGH CPL. WHAT HAS EMERGED BETWEEN CAFOD AND CPL IS A RELATIONSHIP OF TRUST AND MUTUAL CONCERN FOR PEOPLE IN NEED." CHRIS BAIN, DIRECTOR OF CAFOD
CAFOD promotes long-term sustainable development, advocates economic justice and works to build peace. As a partnership agency, it works together with local organisations on projects within a community. This ensures that the context to the issue is thoroughly understood. Whilst the church allows access to these vulnerable communities, CAFOD’s vast network is formed of both religious and secular organisations.
The agency works with its partners ahead of, during and after all projects, finding ways to empower the community so they are able to continue this developmental work into the future.
CAFOD also responds in emergencies. At times of crisis, the synergy between sustainable support, pre-positioning disaster relief, and crisis response is crucial in ensuring that communities have a voice, the emergency support they need, and the capacity to rebuild their world.
